Jan, I'm so sorry to hear about Uncle Bart. I know he was a large part of your life and I know all who knew him will miss him terribly. I'm so glad I got to "experience" Uncle Bart when I was spending time with you. I say "experience" because it was. A very happy experience. You knew when he came him into the room there would be laughter. That's what I remember about him. I bet his puppy is really going to be lost without him. My heartfelt condolences to your Aunt Mimi and to all his family.

Although I can't be there in person I am there in spirit. Uncle Bart will always hold a special place in my heart. There are too many wonderful memories espically "How do you spell your last name!!" I'm glad I got to spend some time with him at Christmas. My love to you Aunt Mimi.
